ws32848-kwss-westsxtiers-1080x1080-stati Christmas and the holiday season will be different this year for many of us, and possibly not how we planned it, so please let’s make 2020 the year we did all we could to protect each other. Coronavirus cases almost doubled in the last week in West Sussex and the county will move into TIER 4: STAY AT HOME restrictions from this Saturday (26 December).

Before then, on Christmas Day (25 December), the government has said up to three households can get together. This is a maximum (not a target), includes your own household, is for one day only, and MUST not include households already in tier 4.

Most areas across the South will be moving to TIER 4: STAY HOME from Saturday. The new rules will mean we MUST not leave or be outside of our home or garden, except where we have a ‘reasonable excuse.’

Tier 4: STAY AT HOME rules    

Remember: Hands. Face. Space. And #KeepWestSussexSafe.
